Make-A-Wish helps 8 year old becomes NFL Coach for a day

  • Published in Sports

Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers asked for his coaches autograph after practice on August 6th.  Coach Jack Bolton got the chance to be the Carolina Panthers honorary coach for the day.  I forgot to mention…Coach Jack Bolton is only 8-years-old! 


Jack Bolton has spinal muscular atrophy, but that’s never deterred him from having the dream to be an NFL coach.  On this day, through the Make-A-Wish foundation, Coach Jack finally got his opportunity to be on the sidelines of an NFL team. 



Steve Smith, the Panthers wide receiver even went over to the 8-year-old coach and asked him if he could get the quarterbacks to throw more passes his way!   The star coach even had a touching speech that he read to the team before practice started.  He let the team know that he’d be “looking for mistakes when I’m on the field watching you guys”! 


Hopefully the Panthers listen to Coach Bolton’s advice and use it towards winning some games this year!



Have a great day, and let the good news be yours,


8 year old with cancer plays soccer with the pros

  • Published in Sports

The Make-A-Wish foundation truly does some amazing things to make kids dreams come true. 8 year-old Atticus Lane-Dupree learned he had cancer last year, but that didn't deter him from playing the game he loves.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation organized a soccer game between a team of 8-year-olds, and the MLS Portland Timbers.

Not only did Atticus Lane-Dupre's team beat the Timbers, but he scored 4 goals! The video is amazing as 3,000 fans cheered the kids on.

We at Good World News wish Atticus well in his fight against cancer, and also keep your dreams alive maybe one day we will be watching him as well on the Timbers!

Have a great day, and let the Good News be Yours!



Kyle Anderson makes a wish and meets NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch

  • Published in Sports

Kyle Anderson is all smiles because one of his dreams has come true.  Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Kyle got to meet his all time hero - Marshawn Lynch, the NFL superstar on the Seattle Seahawks!!!

Kyle has been through a lot to get to this point.  He's been through the Chemotherapy to attempt to remove a cancerous tumor in his leg.  This lead to an operation to replace the bone with a metal prosthesis which can actually allow for his leg to grow as this 13 year old gets taller.

He didn't just get to meet Marshawn Lynch, he got to go to their Monday Night Game against the Greenbay Packers, got an autographed footbal, met other players on the team, and received an autographed jersey among many other gifts.

“I just thanked him for all the stuff he did for me,” Kyle said. “Back in January, on my birthday, I was in the hospital and he called on the phone. I didn’t believe it was him at first, but it was. So that was nice.  It’s really special having a friend like that in the NFL.”

Marshawn Lynch responded, “It’s a good feeling, especially because I do a lot with the kids. For a kid to be sick and then the only thing that they want to do is meet me – for what strange reason, I have no idea – it made me feel good that what I’m doing somebody could take the initiative and appreciate what I actually do.

A kid's dream has come true!!  Gotta smile about that :)


Peace & Love,
